As a visual artist, Steph Elmer is best known for her simple, uncomplicated design work and crafting meaningful content that connects with her viewers’ imagination through space, movement and light.

Beginning her creative career as a producer for Prince — developing the artists’ still and motion content at Paisley Park Studios, as well as on his international tours — Steph has since directed over 300 commercials for blue chip clients like Macy’s, Versace Timepieces, Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, GUCCI, Sonya Dakar, Chinese Laundry, and Diet Coke.

Her history working in art direction and music, her early training as an actor at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood, and her filmmaking internship at the American Film Institute all inform and inspire her work, allowing Steph to not just create a lot from very little, but to make a body of work that is rich, eclectic and truly engaging for her audiences.

Steph, a multiple Telly Award recipient, works full time as a freelance director and currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
